With the unreliable British weather, what could be more amazing than a drone that will follow you around with an umbrella attached to keep you dry?

The Umbrella drone, available exclusively from DronesDirect.co.uk is a DJI Phantom 4 with a bright yellow umbrella attached, so not only will it be able to navigate to perfection, it’ll keep the drone dry (and you, if you decide to follow underneath it).

For those who aren’t aware of the high-tech DJI has packed into its £1,200 drone, it features collision avoidance technology to stop it bashing into trees, lamp posts or walls, a high capacity battery for continuous 30 minutes of flying and a camera that will record video at 4K resolution at 30fps and full HD 1080p at 120fps.

DronesDirect likes to point out that not only will the umbrella keep the drone dry and protect it from gusts of wind, but it’ll also keep you dry without having to take your own umbrella, meaning you can continue to walk your dog, go for a bike ride or even drink a coffee while walking to work, with the Umbrella Drone all the time circling above your head.

“For those who don’t want to be confined to staying indoors, who want to drone in changeable weather, and those who don’t want to juggle managing an umbrella while carrying out their everyday tasks, then the innovative Umbrella Drone is a gadget not to be without,” Tim Morley, business unit manager at DronesDirect.co.uk, said.

‘Not only does it offer intelligent protection throughout the worst of Britain’s weather, but it’s a fun and advanced piece of tech too.”
